SLAVERY TODAY: KEVIN BALES


Published 2005


(Human Trafficking Conference, Erie PA, April 19, 2005) There are more than 27 million slaves in the world today, and more in the making, and rapidly. Kevin Bales, PhD, the worlds leading expert on contemporary slavery, author of Disposable People: New Slavery in the Global Economy, and president of Free The Slaves. In a series of public lectures and class talks, Bales distinguishes the old slavery versus the new where there is no investment necessary in the easily acquired property. A slave can be bought for as cheap as $50, discarded when no longer useful (or dead), and another bought. Close to a million people are trafficked across international borders every year, 70 percent are female and 50 percent are children, Bales reveals. Event sponsored Gannon University, Edinboro University, Mercyhurst College, and the Sisters of St. Joseph. (58 min.)
